- Eyes: If in eyes rinse cautiously with water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses if easy to
do so. Continue rinsing. Seek medical attention.
- Skin: Immediately take off all contaminated clothing. Wash thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes.
Wash contaminated clothes before reuse. Seek immediate medical attention.
- Inhalation: Remove to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Call a physician
if you feel unwell. Monitor for respiratory distress. Apply artificial respiration if not breathing. Do not use
mouth-to-mouth methods if victim ingested or inhaled the substance; give artificial respiration with the
aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device. Toxic
vapours may be released on thermal decomposition including nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and
- Ingestion: If swallowed call a poison center if you feel unwell. Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting
by use of emetics. Seek medical attention.
- Dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide, and alcohol resistant foam.
- Water can be effective in cooling down the fire-exposed containers and knocking down the vapours.
Water jets may be used to flush spills away and dilute the same to non-flammable mixturesfog or alcoholresistant
foam by directing streams to the periphery of the fires to prevent spread.
Advice for firefighters:
- Evacuate the area and fight fires from a safe distance.- If tank, rail car or tank truck is involved in a fire, ISOLATE for 800 meters (1/2 mile) in all directions; also,
consider initial evacuation for 800 meters (1/2 mile) in all directions or as per locally valid procedures.
- Fire-fighters must wear Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA).
- Report any run-off of firewater’s contaminated with this chemical as per local and federal procedures
Exposure Control and emergency control :
- Wear protective clothing, full boots, impervious gloves, safety glasses and Self Contained Breathing
Apparatus (SCBA), as may be deemed appropriate.
- Alert Emergency Responders and tell them location and nature of hazard.
- Shut off all possible sources of ignition and increase ventilation.
- Stop leaks if possible.
- Clean up all spills immediately following relevant Standard Operating Procedures.
- Avoid breathing vapors and contact with skin and eyes.
- Inform authorities in event of contamination of any public sewers, drains or water bodies.
- Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water and watercourses.
- Collect recoverable product into labeled containers for recycling, recovery or disposal.
- Contain spill with sand, earth or vermiculite.
- Spread area with lime or absorbent material, and leave for at least 1 hour before washing.
Clean up methods:- Clean up all tools and equipment.
- Decontaminate all equipment
Precautions for safe handling:
- Do not breathe vapor or mist.
- Wear protective gloves/clothing and eye/face protection.
- Wash thoroughly after handling.
- Ground and secure containers when dispensing or pouring product.
- Avoid contact with incompatible materials.
- When handling,DO NOT eat, drink or smoke.
- Launder contaminated clothing before re-use.
- If on skin or hair, IMMEDIATELY remove all contaminated clothing and rinse/shower with plenty of
- Use in a well ventilated place/Use protective clothing commensurate with exposure levels.
- Store in a cool, dry and ventilated place.
- Keep dry &protected from direct sunlight.
- Store away from incompatible materials.
- Keep only in original container.
- Keep securely closed when not in use.
Exposure Limits Values:
- ACGIH TLV: None listed
- OSHA PEL: None listed
- NIOSH: None listed
Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep the relevant airborne concentrations
below their respective occupational exposure limits. Local ventilation is usually preferred. Ensure that
eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.
- Protective clothing should be selected specifically for the working place, depending on concentration
and quantity of the hazardous substances handled. The resistance of the protective clothing to chemicals
should be ascertained with the respective supplier.
- Hands: Wear appropriate protective gloves and clothing to prevent skin exposure. The protective
gloves to be used must comply with the specifications of EC directives 89/686/EEC and the resultant
- Eyes: Safety goggles/ Chemical Safety glasses and Face shield.
- Clothing: Boots and clothing to prevent contact.
- Respirator: Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29CFR 1910.134 or European Standard
EN 149. Always use a NIOSH or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator when necessary.
Reactivity: 2,6-Lutidine is a colorless to yellow oily liquid with characteristic odour. It is freely soluble
Chemical stability: Stable under normal temperature and pressures.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: Hazardous Polymerization: Not expected.
Conditions to avoid: Keep away from High temperature, sparks, moist condition, mechanical shock,
incompatible materials, ignition sources, excess heat.

Hazardous decomposition products: Thermal decomposition may produce carbon monoxide and oxides
of nitroge, carbon dioxide, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen cyanide and irritating and toxic fumes
- Burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber.
- Dispose of this material in accordance with standard practice for disposal of potentially hazardous
materials as required by applicable federal, state or local laws. Note that disposal regulations may also
apply to empty containers and equipment rinsates.
